19 Unpopular "Hunger Games" Opinions That'll Have You Looking At The Series In A New Light

May the opinions be ever in your favor.

We asked the brave members of the BuzzFeed Community to share their most unpopular Hunger Games opinions. Here are some that'll have you remembering the series a lil' differently:

1. Catching Fire is both the best film and best book in the Hunger Games franchise.

Lionsgate

2. Effie and Haymitch should have ended up together.

Lionsgate

3. Mockingjay definitely should have been made into two films — there was too much content in the book to fit into one movie.

Lionsgate

4. Katniss's prep team — Flavius, Venia, and Octavia — should have been included in the films.

Lionsgate

5. Gale, at the end of the day, is an awful and selfish character.

Lionsgate

6. There's nothing wrong with the "career" tributes — the ones from districts 1 and 2. It ensures glory and riches for them and their families, so they shouldn't be shamed for volunteering.

Lionsgate

7. Johanna is the the best character in the series and should have gotten more page/screen time.

Lionsgate

8. Katniss should have ended up alone.

Lionsgate

9. The prequel series should be about Haymitch, not President Snow.

Lionsgate

10. No one should be able to volunteer as tribute — if your name gets called, then you have to participate.

Lionsgate

11. Effie getting added to the plot of Mockingjay made the movie better since Effie's an amazing character.

12. Primrose's death in Mockingjay wasn't sad.

Lionsgate

13. Finnick should have lived.

Lionsgate

14. Katniss shouldn't have ended up with Peeta, or even Gale. She should have ended up with Finnick.

Lionsgate

15. Katniss and Peeta shouldn't have had kids at the end because Katniss spent the entire series saying she didn't want them.

Lionsgate

16. Katniss is not a likable heroine.

17. Rue was an underrated/underutilized character that they could have used more.

Lionsgate

18. Madge, who was Katniss's best friend and the one who actually gave her the Mockingjay pin, should not have been cut from the series.

Lionsgate

19. Lastly, Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, while great actors in their own right, were not good choices to play Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark.
